On the 21st day of August 2014 we are celebrating the birthday of Jesus in Cross Timbers State Park at Toronto, Kansas. This location has one of the better dark sky areas in the Midwest and we are hoping to view the constellation of Sagittarius and the Milky Way, 15:3.3
The main topic for the celebration will be reviewing and contributing to the Top Ten reasons to work for The Kingdom of Heaven.
The Park is located a short one hour drive east of Wichita and about three hours drive southwest of Kansas City. The remoteness gives a better opportunity to more clearly view the night sky.
August is one of the hottest months in Kansas and the humidy can be a challenge. Also you need to be prepared for insects on a hot and humid Kansas night.
A daily six dollar motor vehicle permit is required to enter the State Park. We have reserved a few air conditioned cabins in the Park and full RV hookups and tent camping is available. The town of Toronto has no accommodations and only one restaurant with limit hours. Woodson County Seat, Yates Center, is twelve miles to the east of the lake with a couple locally owned motels, a few small restaurants and a grocery.
Let us know if you plan on coming and we will have food available.
Ice cream and cake will be served for the birthday party.
If you can not come, make sure to take time and thank Jesus on his birthday for his superbly successful bestowal mission here on Urantia. 34:5.5
